Couple start a family after only one date
SWNYweblove - New York office - +1 646 873 7565A woman who moved in with her online lover after just ONE face-to-face date has told how her leap of faith has led to a blissful marriage, two children and another baby on the way.Shakeela Fetterhoff was only 18-years-old when she spotted the man of her dreams on the dating app Skout. After just three months of conversing online and a single date Shakeela abandoned her family in DeKalb, Illinois and moved 800 miles across the country to Montgomery, Alabama to live with her now-husband Jeremy. Shakeela, 25, and Jeremy, 31, say they were smitten with each other from day one. "He reached out to me on the dating site," said Shakeela, a stay-at-home mom. "I thought he was a catfish at first because he was so attractive and he had professional pictures of himself on there. "But after about 20 minutes of texting back and forth he called me and we spoke for about 30 minutes. "The next day he asked me to be his girlfriend." Jeremy, who works in sales for a security company, said: "It was as if God put her in front of me and told me 'this is the one.' "And we're still in love seven years later." Shakeela said: "I was so excited that he asked me to be his girlfriend right away. "We were in different states, so we wanted to make sure there wasn't anyone else who could spark our interest. "I was 18 when we first met online, and Jeremy was 24. "I had just graduated high school the week before and I was living with my dad while I looked for a job. "Jeremy was working as a call dispatcher at the college he'd attended, the ASU in Alabama. "I wasn't working so my cellphone was about to be shut off, but after just one month of talking online Jeremy offered to pay my phone bill, so that we could continue talking. "We never used FaceTime or video link, all we had was phone calls, text messages and the photos we had sent to each other. "I was really big on rock music, so we would recommend different songs to each other. "He was ready to settle down and so was I. "I wanted to meet someone who was serious, not just someone looking for sex. "He said he loved me during the first week of us dating online and I told him that I felt the same. "He told me he would take care of me and that he couldn't wait for us to be together, he said he saw a future together, we even talked about kids and what their names would be. "But we knew that in order for it to work one of us would have to move. "Jeremy had just started a new job, so he asked if I'd be willing to meet him, and then move to Alabama so we could be together. "I knew that it would either be a positive experience, or a terrible one. "I had planned to stay with my great aunt in Mississippi for the summer, so we decided to meet up for the first time there, because it's closer to Alabama. "But even before I left for Mississippi I knew I would go to live with Jeremy. "I secretly packed my passport, birth certificate and all the things I would need for our future together. "I didn't tell my dad, I knew he would try to talk me out of it, but I had made up my mind...he just thought I was packing for the trip to see my aunt. "I didn't know if Jeremy was a serial killer, or if he was abusive, but I felt confident that he was a good person, I was willing to take that risk because I was so in love." Shakeela and Jeremy first connected online on June 11, 2012. Less than one month later she was traveling to Mississippi with her life's belongings, ready to elope with her mystery man. "I got on the Greyhound bus, it was about a twelve hour journey and it was my first time traveling alone. "On the bus I was very excited, I texted Jeremy the whole time, just letting him know that I was safe and that I couldn't wait to see him. "I knew I wanted our relationship to work. "I was sad to leave my family behind though, I'd never been away from them before." The couple's first date was about five weeks after they first met online. "I had told my great aunt about Jeremy and said I wanted to go and meet him for pizza and a movie. "She was very protective of me, so she picked out the closest movie theatre and made sure that she knew exactly where I was going to be all night. "My heart was racing really fast before I saw him, I couldn't believe that it was really happening. "We'd never video chatted before, so he could have been a completely different person, but luckily he wasn't. "We went to Pizza Hut and then watched The Dark Knight Rises. "I was a virgin when we met, so we didn't go the whole way until after we'd moved in together, but on that first night we did share the same bed."He told me that he'd had five sexual partners before we met." The next time the couple met in person they packed up Jeremy's car and drove to Alabama to live together. "My dad was not happy about it at all," said Shakeela. "He tried to stop me, but I wasn't going to change my mind. "He gave Jeremy a stern talk, he warned him that he had to treat me with respect and not hurt me. "He said: 'I don't want to have to go to prison for hurting him if he hurts you.'"Now Jeremy is a father too, he knows exactly how my dad must have felt that day." By the end of August 2012 the couple were living together, with Jeremy's two roommates. On October 28, 2012 they got their own place. "By the time I was 19 I knew I was ready to have a baby," said Shakeela. Now the couple have two children, Edolie, five, and Ender, two. Their third baby is due on December 7 . "I wanted five children and Jeremy wanted one or two, so we stetted at three," said Shakeela. "We had actually chosen Edolie's name before we'd even met each other."We picked the name out together during the first month that we were dating online." Jeremy said: "I could tell immediately that Shakeela was different from anyone I'd anyone I'd met before. "She has always been so loyal and faithful to me. "We love to communicate through music and if we have a little tiff we can never stay mad at each other for long. "We don't bicker, we sleep in the same bed and enjoy each other's company."I hope our story can encourage others not to lose hope with online dating." In 2014 the lovebirds moved to Jacksonville, Florida, to be closer to Shakeela's family. Shakeela said: "I'm closer than ever with my dad now. "He thought I was crazy when I first went to live with Jeremy, he thought I was moving in with a stranger. "But now he's really proud of us both, that we made it work, and we're still happy and in love."I am still as attracted to Jeremy and as in love with him as I was seven years ago. "He is still the same sweet, handsome man that I fell for. Seeing him as a father has made me love him even more."The main reasons why I love him so much is how loving he is about me and our kids. "He's very family oriented and has support me staying home to raise our children. He loves to show off his wife and kids to the world." ENDS

Man claims his life was saved by Apple Watch
**ONLINE EMBARGO 2PM, PLEASE - NO USE BEFORE**SWSYapple - By Hattie BishopMeet the man whose smart watch saved his life after it alerted him to a deadly heart condition - that he'd been unaware of since birth.Jorge Cox, 22, underwent five hours of open heart surgery in May 2019, at the private Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle, Manchester, after alerting medics to worrying heart rate readings from his fancy Apple watch.The preforming arts student first realised something was wrong when the device recorded heart rate readings of over 130bpm whilst he was resting during September 2018.Assuming the readings were to do with his caffeine intake during his stressful university course, he forgot all about it.But after mentioning it to a nurse - who was checking him over before an unrelated throat procedure - at the Royal Oldham Hospital in November 2018, doctors ran tests and diagnosed him with Aortic Regurgitation - also known as a leaky heart valve.The condition occurs when the heart's aortic valve doesn't close tightly and results in some of the blood pumped out of the organ's main camber leaking back into it.It can lead to sudden heart failure if not treated and medics told Jorge he could have 'dropped down dead' at any time.Jorge, a graduate from Blackpool and The Fylde College, who lives in Oldham, Manchester, said: ''It all began when I kept getting these heart rhythm readings.''Basically the Apple Watch tells you if there is a spike in heart rate, but mine kept happening when I was lying down, watching TV or dozing which is unusual."Your heart rate usually spikes if you're doing something strenuous like excising or if you have lots of caffeine. ''It didn't make much sense, but I put it down to the amount of coffee I was drinking to get through my exams.''I'd always have at least one large iced coffee from Starbucks each day - sometimes more - to help with exam stress so assumed it was the caffeine from that.''In fact, I only mentioned it in passing to a nurse who was prepping me for a tonsillectomy because she asked if I had any history of heart problems.''She was amazing and made sure it was checked out straight away - thank god she did.''Finding out I was so ill was really scary, I wouldn't wish it on anyone, I was terrified for my life.''Jorge first acquired his Apple watch in November 2016 - when he paid for it himself on finance - and then upgraded to a Series Four model in January 2019.Without the Apple watch Jorge maintains that he might not be alive to 'tell the tale' as doctors warned that he could have 'dropped down dead' at any time.Looking back, the singer now believes that he'd ignored other symptoms after mistaking them for normal teen behaviours and school stress.He said: ''In hindsight, I was always was exhausted, which I now know to be a symptom of the condition.''I was tired because not enough blood was circulating fast enough, but I just assumed it was normal growing pains.''All my friends were always knackered too and loved their lie ins but I now see that my fatigue was on another level.''Even though I'm still recovering I still have 50 per cent more energy than I did before - it's crazy to think I lived so long not knowing how ill I was.''I also really have to thank my incredible surgeon too, I couldn't be more grateful.''Even through the recovery has been such a slog, I'm really glad this has happened, my career is going to be a breeze now I've got my heart fixed.''Jorge underwent the five hour operation at the private Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle, as the NHS wasn't able to offer a quick enough slot.The surgery, which involved breaking his sternum, replaced Jorge's leaky valve with a new one, giving him a new lease of life.Medics explained that the condition was most likely a defect since birth and that he'd been 'very lucky' to have it finally diagnosed.Jorge is now recovering well at home and his heart rate and rhythm have returned to normal.''I feel so blessed. Thank goodness I got an Apple watch, I'd be a walking death trap if I hadn't," he said. ''It just doesn't bare thinking about. ''I have so much respect for that technology.''I've always loved Apple products and now even more so!''I'm so grateful to the nurse who made the time to get me properly checked out, I owe my life to her too.''Brave Jorge's heart rate is now back to normal and he's being supported through his recovery by his loving parents, Donna, 55, and Paul, 58.His teacher boyfriend Shane, 23, has also been 'a rock' throughout the ordeal.''My friends and family were almost more worried than me about it, it was really rubbish for them to have to watch me get wheeled away into a serious operation and they've admitted to me since they thought they might not see me alive again," he said.''I'm over the shock of it all now and just happy to be alive!''The first few weeks recovery were the worse as I was in a huge amount of pain but it's getting better everyday.''I'm just so excited to get on with my career now - which I've had to put on hold while I get better - but I can't wait to get back on stage with a renewed energy.''ENDS
